Play Safe And Follow The Law When Storing Fuel In Jerry Cans, Says Slingsby

With fuel shortages continuing to make headlines as Easter approaches, workplace equipment supplier Slingsby has seen jerry can sales treble over the last fortnight. As a result, the company has compiled a list of safety guidelines for anyone stockpiling fuel at home.

Even though strike action over the Easter bank holiday seems to have been ruled out, the threat of industrial action still looms, with the Unite union looking for guarantees of improved safety standards and working terms for tanker drivers. As a result, petrol retailers in the UK are continuing to report soaring sales and problems replenishing stocks to meet demand.

Lee Wright, Marketing Director at Slingsby, which supplies 35,000 products online and through its catalogues, said: “Sales of jerry cans to the domestic market have gone crazy since talk of a strike by tanker drivers began. When this is combined with the huge volumes of petrol and diesel that fuel retailers have sold in the last few days, and continued fears over potential strike action, it seems that a large proportion of people have listened to the government’s controversial advice and are storing fuel at home.

“We would always advise against stockpiling fuel because the explosion and fire risks can be disastrous, but if someone is adamant that they want to store fuel at home there are a number of guidelines that should always be followed”

Slingsby has compiled the following advice that anyone storing fuel should follow:

Approved storage solutions that are specifically designed for fuel must be used. Appropriate containers should be marked and fitted with a secure cap to prevent leakage of liquid and fuel vapours.

The maximum amount of fuel that can be legally stored at a domestic address is 30 litres, which must be kept in two 10 litre metal containers and two plastic containers with a maximum capacity of five litres each.

Using other combinations of containers, such as three, 10 litre metal containers or six of the five litre containers is illegal.

These limits also apply to any containers kept in vehicles parked in a garage or on a driveway.

Any fuel stored at home should be kept in a garage or shed that is either detached from the main living accommodation or if it is an adjoining building it should be separated by a fire door.

If fuel is left outside it should be no more than six metres from your house.

Never store fuel in the living area of your home.

New Tugs Pull In Sales for Slingsby

A NEW and innovative range of handling and lifting equipment are already proving to be a hit within months of being added to Slingsby’s new catalogue.

Although the company now sells all types of workplace equipment it has been supplying a market leading range of trolleys, trucks and tugs since 1893 when company founder, Harry Crowther Slingsby, began producing products to move heavy loads horizontally around large buildings.

The latest additions to the range feature electric motors and are designed to pull, push and steer wheeled loads of up to 1000kg, with hardly any effort required by the operator.

Dominic Slingsby, Managing Director of Slingsby explains: “These state of the art tugs are simple to use and enable anyone to manoeuvre substantial loads around confined spaces by literally flicking a switch. Although there are cheaper alternatives out there, these are among the best tugs in the world at the moment and as a result they are immediately generating interest due to their huge potential and versatility.

“They are designed to be used in all types of premises from hospitals to warehouses and shops through to factories. These products will immediately increase productivity, reduce manual handling and improve safety and for larger premises there’s also an option to add a ride-on platform.”

They come with built-in rechargeable batteries, an accelerator system that can be regulated to specific limits and they can be adapted to work with a wide range of trolleys, carts and pallet systems. Visit www.slingsby.ie or call 1850 200 633.

Turn Up The Heat On Fire Procedures In Your Workplace

DESPITE new legislation being introduced last year to reinforce the fact that employers in England must consider an employee’s capabilities when it comes to fire safety, the majority are still unaware of their obligations according to workplace equipment provider Slingsby.

The Fire Safety (Employees’ Capabilities) (England) Regulations 2010 were introduced to clarify how fire-related tasks and assignments should be delegated to employees. As part of the legislation employers must consider what a worker is able and unable to do and how these capabilities may affect their ability to deal with fire-related risks.

Lee Wright, Marketing Director of Slingsby, which supplies 35,000 workplace products including an extensive range of fire safety equipment, explains: “Rather than being an extra burden for employers, these new regulations have been introduced to reinforce a workplace’s responsibilities under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005. However the majority of businesses that we speak to are still unaware of the requirements and, as well as creating health and safety issues, this could put them at risk of prosecution.

“The regulations say that employers must carry out a fire safety risk assessment to identify what general fire precautions need to be in place. This should be reviewed regularly and updated where necessary. It must take a workers’ capabilities into consideration along with specific risks they face in their job role and where necessary employers should provide specific training. This also applies to fire wardens or marshals.”

The Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 is still the primary legislation concerning all sectors of fire safety. As part of this employers are required to carry out a fire risk assessment to identify potential hazards and then take action to reduce them. They must also have a plan in place in case of an emergency as well as nominated people to assist in implementing it and all employees should be aware of the procedures.

All buildings must have adequate escape routes for their size and layout. In addition relevant signage should display fire procedures and highlight exits. In premises where employees could be unaware of a fire, either because it’s out of sight or they can’t hear warnings from colleagues, suitable fire alarms should be used and emergency lighting may be necessary in dark escape routes.

Usually one water based extinguisher is also required for each 200m2 of floor space, with a minimum of one extinguisher per floor. However in large or more complex premises, and depending on individual risks, a greater number or wider range of fire safety equipment could be required and some premises may also require hose reels, fire blankets or protective clothing.

Don’t Slip Up By Neglecting Floors

DESPITE slips and trips still being one of the most common causes of accidents in the workplace, many employers are unknowingly putting their employees at risk by not maintaining non-slip flooring correctly, according to a warning from workplace equipment provider, Slingsby.

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) says at least one serious slip injury occurs every three minutes in workplaces throughout Great Britain and most of these are due to contaminants, such as water or grease.

Lee Wright, Marketing Director of Slingsby which supplies more than 35,000 workplace products across all industries from salt spreaders to air conditioners, explains: “Non-slip flooring is often found in high traffic areas such as kitchens and on walkways so it can quickly build up with dirt and grime if it is not cleaned regularly and as the HSE’s figures demonstrate this regularly results in accidents.

“Cleaning up any spillages or contaminations should be a priority in all organisations. Putting such procedures in place is quick and easy and can immediately make a workplace safer and reduce the risk of injuries and compensation claims.”

Lee adds: “In addition non-slip safety matting should be cleaned regularly to maintain its non-slip properties and in busy or public areas it should be cleaned every day. Because a lot of non-slip floors are heavily textured rap mops usually work better than sponge mops, which often disintegrate, and an industrial floor cleaning product should also be used. A scrub brush is good for tough areas or else steam cleaners are also very effective on these surfaces.

Workplace Safety Experts Slingsby Warns ‘Flooding Can Drown A Business’

AS FLOODING becomes an ever increasing risk in the UK, many organisations are investing in flood protection products as a precaution against the severe disruption that water damage can do to a business according to workplace equipment provider Slingsby.

The Association of British Insurers has revealed that since 2000 the cost of flood damage in the UK has soared by more than 200 per cent with insurers paying out £4.5 billion since the start of the decade, which is up from £1.5 billion between 1990 and 2000. Slingsby sells more than 35,000 products across all industries and in recent years the company has introduced a range of flood defence products as a direct result of customer demand.

Lee Wright, Marketing Director of Slingsby says: “Flooding is becoming an ever increasing threat to many workplaces and as we’ve seen in recent years it can happen at almost any time during the year. Many businesses that experience a flood never reopen and with the Government recently announcing investment cuts in flood defences, we’re seeing increasing numbers of businesses buying flood protection products purely as an insurance policy.

“Even though a business may not be located near to a river or other such water source, it could still be affected by surface or groundwater flooding which can be very difficult to predict. Although it’s impossible to completely flood-proof a property there are lots of things that can be done to help prevent flood damage and make drying-out and cleaning up much quicker and easier.”

Lee continues: “In buildings that are at risk of flooding, for fixed items and furniture, it’s a good idea to use water resistant materials such as stainless steel or plastic where possible and electrical equipment and machinery can sit on raised plinths. It also makes sense to raise electrical sockets and fuse boxes and store valuable items on high-mounted shelves.

“Most importantly any insurance policies covering buildings and contents should be checked to determine what cover they offer for flood damage. It’s also worth notifying insurers when making any modifications to buildings because it could result in lower premiums.”

Below is a selection of products from Slingsby’s range that are all proving especially popular with businesses and organisations looking to protect themselves against the risks of flooding. They are all available from Slingsby by visiting www.slingsby.com or by calling 0800 294 4440.

Slingsby’s Sound Advice Can Prevent Industrial Deafness

DESPITE legislation being introduced to guard against it, thousands of employees still develop hearing problems every year as a result of being exposed to excessive noise in the workplace, even though it is one of the easiest and cheapest conditions to prevent according to workplace equipment provider Slingsby.

Under The Control of Noise at Work Regulations, employers have a legal responsibility to protect workers from high noise levels in order to prevent hearing loss or tinnitus which causes a constant ringing, buzzing or whistling sound in the ear.

Lee Wright, Marketing Director of Slingsby explains: “Hearing problems, tinnitus or industrial deafness, as it’s often known, are still common medical conditions that are caused by excessive noise. The severity of the condition depends entirely on the level of noise and the length of time exposed to it but in severe cases it can lead to complete hearing loss and once the damage is done the effects are irreversible.

“Employers are required by law to protect their employees when noise reaches certain levels or else they can face prosecution and compensation claims. For this reason it’s important that employers monitor noise levels in areas where it can become uncomfortable. However the good news is that if it is excessive, it’s usually cheap and easy to guard employees against it.”

To help prevent hearing problems, Slingsby has compiled a check-list that employers must follow when noise levels reach certain levels.

When daily noise levels reach an average of 80 dBA (decibels) employers must:

– Explain the risks to employees and tell them how to protect their ears.
– Provide ear protectors – otherwise known as ‘ear defenders’ – and keep them in good working order.
– Reduce noise levels wherever possible by modifying, muffling or replacing equipment and maintaining it regularly.
– When daily noise levels reach an average of 85 dBA (decibels) ear protectors must be worn by law and signs must be displayed warning people they are in an ‘ear protection zone’.
– Average exposure levels, after taking into account any hearing protection, should never exceed 87 dBA.

Be Organised and Improve Productivity With Slingsby’s Safety Products

NEARLY every workplace in the UK can increase efficiency by making some simple improvements to employee workspaces according to Slingsby, which supplies workplace equipment across all industries and regularly advises businesses on ways of enhancing productivity.

Lee Wright, Marketing Director of Slingsby explains: “We work with all types of companies to solve a wide range of problems but a common theme revolves around employee work rates. Wages are the biggest expense for most businesses so it’s false economy if people are unable to perform to their full potential simply because of their surroundings.

“The first thing we always look at is personal workspaces and work stations and there are nearly always areas where these can be improved. Although most of us spend more time at work than anywhere else, many people neglect to keep their workspace clean and tidy which ultimately reduces a person’s efficiency.”

Lee continues: “Everyone has spent time at work trying to find things that have been misplaced. Whether it’s a phone number or a piece of equipment it wastes time and in most cases it’s completely unnecessary.

“There are huge benefits to proactive employers that encourage employees to maintain tidy and organised work areas because almost immediately they will see output improve. Even if every employee just spends five minutes at the end of the day to get organised for the following day, it makes a big difference and clearing things away after they have been used also makes for a much safer working environment.”

Slingsby sells a wide range of popular products that can help workplaces to stay organised, including office furniture and health and safety signs. For the oncoming winter weather Slingsby can help your business be prepared with grit bins and salt spreaders as well as bollards for clear marking even after a coating of snow or ice.
